Notes:                                                                      
    1. CIM definiti
ons were followed for the estimation of mineral          
       resources.                                                           
    2. Mineral resources are estimated at a Cu cut-off of 0.5%.             
    3. Cut-off grade was based on a copper price of US$3.63 per pound.      
    4. Given the tonnage, grade and orientation of the deposit, Caracle     
       Creek considers the T-1 Copper Deposit to be reasonably amenable to  
       extraction using underground mining methods.                         
    5. Specific Gravity measurements were taken on a portion of the samples 
       and where actual measurements were not available an average of 3.00  
       was used.                                                            
    6. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have           
       demonstrated economic viability.                                     

 
The Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource for the T-1 Copper
Deposit was classified according to the CIM Definition Standards for
Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (December 2005) by Mr. Jason
Baker P.Eng. (APENS#9627), who is an appropriate independent person
for the purpose of NI 43-101. Mr. Baker has reviewed and approved the
technical content of this news release. 
The T-1 Copper Deposit is a remobilized, single, vertical dipping,
high grade, VMS lens that is located immediately below a 100m thick
layer of Paleozoic limestone cover. It consists of stringers and
massive sulphide lenses of chalcopyrite, pyrite, pyrrhotite and
sphalerite. Drilling has intersected the deposit over a strike length
of 800m and to a vertical depth of up to 600m. The Deposit
mineralization remains open along strike and at depth where surface
(DPEM) and bore hole geophysics have indicated a continuation of the
sulphide conductivity beyond the limits of the resource. The deposit
is associated with a 12km long arcuate trending copper horizon
hosting a second zone of copper mineralization (T-2 Copper Zone) and
several additional conductive targets worthy of follow up
exploration. 
Ken Lapierre P.Geo., President and CEO of Rockcliff Resources Inc., a
Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements
as set out in NI 43-101, is responsible for the information in this
press release. 
Pursuant to an exploration and option agreement with Pure Nickel
Inc., to earn a 70% interest in the property, Rockcliff must pay
$150,000 in incremental payments and is required to incur aggregate
exploration expenditures totalling $4,000,000. 
Rockcliff has recently exercised the option to earn its 50% interest
by spending $2,000,000 on exploration expenditures and paying $90,000
to Pure Nickel Inc. over the last two years. Both parties will now
form a joint venture and Rockcliff will earn an additional 20% in the
property by spending an additional $2,000,000 (in progress) in
exploration expenditures and paying a total of $60,000 over the next
2 years. Once completed, Rockcliff will control a 70% interest in the
property. An underlying 2% NSR on the property is held by Xstrata
Nickel, of which half can be purchased for $1,000,000.
